My father gave me these old chairs, they were left over furniture from an estate sale and he knew that I could do something with them, very smart man my father! I instantly fell in love with these chairs they had great bones. First I cleaned them and sanded them down a bit then I removed the old fabric and padding and placed new fabric and padding. My only regret is that I didn’t take a before picture; however, I’m very happy with the outcome. These lovely chairs look fabulous in my craft room!
